Durham Knows is a public health campaign promoting the idea that everyone in Durham should know their HIV status. If everyone in DURHAM age 15 to 65 KNOWS their HIV status, we can get life-saving treatment to the people who need it and this will help ALL live in a healthier, safer Durham.
Durham Knows is a joint project of the HIV/STI committee of the Partnership for a Healthy Durham and the Durham County Department of Public Health. Big thanks to our campaign partners- 2beatHIV, CAARE Inc., DukeHealth, El Centro Hispano, Lincoln Community Health Center, North Carolina Central University, Triangle Empowerment Center and UNC Center of Infectious Disease.
Persons at high risk for getting HIV (for example, partner of a person with HIV) now have the option of taking a pill once a day to greatly reduce their risk of becoming infected with the virus, in addition to using other preventive methods such as condoms.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a new tool for HIV prevention being promoted by the Durham County Department of Public Health and other local healthcare providers.
